Stella is a graduate teacher from the National University of Mar del Plata, Argentina. She has been teaching English for over 25 years to children and adolescents. She has developed EFL classroom projects at both private and state institutions. She works as an exams developer and as a Speaking Examiner.
When she came across Jolly Phonics it was ‘love at first sight’. She took part in a pilot experience that was being carried out in some state schools in Buenos Aires in 2014. Since then, she has been applying the Jolly Phonics programme in all her classes with excellent results. She has also spread the word about the benefits of the synthetic phonics method at different lectures.
Stella currently works as a teacher trainer at the government’s professional training centre in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires where she coaches other English teachers on how to use the synthetic phonics method.
